The Situation After four consecutive games without a win against Augsburg, Hertha, Ajax and Mönchengladbach, including three home games, it is impossible […]
Four competitive games, four wins, 12:1 goals, league leader – as Bayern coach Niko Kovač mastered the first meters in the full sprint.

Host Susie Schaaf is joined by French Football Weekly and IBWM editor Jeremy Smith, as well as Mia San Rot’s very own Tobi, to chat about the Wolfsburg draw and the PSG loss.

As always, thank you for listening. Mia san mia.
